Glass Hearts

A Poem By Madeline // 1/1/2013

I drew hearts on the foggy glass
Before everything happened
And though it felt long; time does pass
Even unexpected

My eyes were stinging sharp and I
Wanted a way out
Angry on my phone I typed
A text I’d never send

I folded in upon myself
All closed off from the world
Praying, heart fell to stealth
As I wished it all away

But then I opened one eye
And saw the hearts were gone
Wiped away, wiped dry
All except for one

A gorgeous little swirly heart
So perfectly drawn
Then He gave us a fresh start
He's good like that, you see

It went away not long later
The heart, God’s way of speaking
And scribbling my heart on paper
It? It is just mine.

But it stays.
It never goes away.

The first two lines were my

The first two lines were my favorite until I reread the ending. "It is just mine./But it stays." Lovely.
